I am extremely good at working with teens, MFT interns who are looking to do some interpersonal work while gaining their 3000 hrs., blended families, divorce Recovery, Drug and Alcohol abuse/use, Gay and Lesbian, grief and loss, as well as Parent/Child Conflicts. I enjoy working with the above clients as well as receiving the internal benefits of watching my clients grow. I receive a "natural high" by working with and helping clients find their true selves. I believe the work I do help my clients enrich their personal and relational growth s well as enhance their emotional healing.
I use CBT. mind, body and spirit are essential components to healing. I specialize in parent/child conflicts, teens with overt behaviors, troubled teens, teens struggling with the transition of life, coaching and self-actualization, stress management, gay and lesbian issues, interpersonal relationships, divorce recovery.
Psychotherapy can provide the ceremonial time/space for honoring one's movement thru important life passages.I utilize a twelve step program/concepts to help deal with the difficult issues of drug and alcohol abuse/use. I also incorporate spirituality into my practice as well as self actualization, and mindlfullness.
